I’ve decided to transition to the Carnivore/Zero Carb style of nutrition for at least 30-45 days to see how it goes. The intention of this transition is to see if I experience any sort of benefit from the complete elimination of plant antigens and any plant based foods that may be causing allergic reactions or autoimmune responses.
This nutrition program has been described as an extreme “Elimination Diet” which is a tool used to identify foods that cause issues in an attempt to build a customized nutrition program for an individual.
I’ve ordered a Food Sensitivity test from Everlywell (Referral Link) so I can find out what foods I will want to avoid when I start adding plant based foods back in after the 30-45 days.
I also have relatively recent lab work which tested my Cholesterol and other metabolic indicators. I’m going to retest after 45 days of Carnivore and see if anything changed.
I’m also going to continue to monitor Ketones and Blood Pressure over the 30-45 days.
